All of you history aficionados are reminded that you have an oppor-
tunity to participate in a history-making annual meeting in San An-
tonio this coming May 16-18. Not only will the Association be holding
a rare meeting away from Austin, but we will be only one block from
HemisFair. David Trimble and the committee on local arrangements
in San Antonio are lining up a three-day festival in our honor. R.
Henderson Shuffler has promised to give us an insight into the his-

ago, and have also recreated a bit of the Germanic flavor of early
Texas. Our president, Seymour V. Conner, will give the Friday night

Saturday luncheon. This year there will be no Saturday afternoon ses-

remainder of you may get an early start home. This could very well
be a truly memorable meeting and should attract a record attendance.
On November 16 the Association, in conjunction with the Travis
County Historical Survey Committee, sponsored a marker ceremony
commemorating the late Judge Zachary Taylor Fulmore, 1846-1923-
Dorman Winfrey, State Librarian, delivered the dedicatory address;
